b. 5. Describe the State’s criteria regarding local area transfer of funds between the adult and dislocated worker programs

Current Narrative:

Local Workforce Development Areas must submit a plan modification request to transfer funds between adult and dislocated worker programs. Once funds are transferred from one funding stream to another, the program eligibility and activity requirements transfer to the new program. However, the funding allocation must be tracked separately in the financial system and reported as if it retained its original identity.

Up to 100 percent of the funds allocated to the local area for Adult and Dislocated Workers may be transferred between adult employment and training activities and dislocated worker employment and training activities per WIOA Section 133(b)(4) and the WIOA's Implementing Regulations at 20 CFR 683.130. Transfer requests must be accompanied by appropriate justification, clearly indicating why the request is being made and how granting the request will benefit local area delivery of workforce development services. At a minimum, the rationale for the transfer should address: 1) the situation necessitating the transfer, including local conditions (labor market, economic, etc.) contributing to the need for the transfer request; 2) how the funds transfer will impact the participant levels in both programs; 3) the transfer's effect on current providers of training and other services; and 4) a description of the expected impact on WIOA performance outcomes for both funding streams.

The fund transfer may be approved by the Governor, provided that: 1) the transfer will not adversely impact an area's capacity to adequately provide appropriate services to individuals in need of such services provided by the program subject to reduced funding; 2) the transfer should also not adversely impact the area's ability to achieve program performance measures established for the current or subsequent years; 3) the local area will expend, at a minimum, 80 percent of all funds budgeted to the receiving funding stream by the end of the program year.
